LEON launches ready meals and vegan sides at Sainsbury’s


LEON today announces the launch of an extensive new product list including: ready meals, sensational vegan sides and two delicious ready-to-eat marinated, chargrilled chicken thighs, created to enjoy at home as part of its exclusive partnership with Sainsbury’s supermarket stores.

Following the recent launch of LEON’s Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets, Brown Seeded Sourdough and Waffle Fries, LEON is now giving people their LEON fix at home with three brand-new product ranges which will span three new categories.

Ready for flavour?

Taking inspiration from their best-selling restaurant favourites from the past few years, LEON today launches six new gluten-free ready meals, inspired by flavours from around the world. The ready meals will be available in the chilled ready meal section at Sainsbury’s supermarket stores from 23 September priced at £4.00. 

The new ready meals include: TheThai Green Chicken Curry, creamy coconut, aromatic lemongrass & umami base notes are layered to create this aromatic sauce, smothered over British marinated chicken thigh chunks. The Chicken Katsu Curry, British marinated chicken thighs smothered in the aromatic LEON Katsu curry sauce. So good, they created a second. The Sweet Potato Katsu Curry swaps out chicken chunks for sweet potato wedges, also smothered in their delicious katsu curry sauce. A plant-rich dish, which contains a source of fibre and 2 of your 5 a day. Oh, and it #JustHappensToBeVegan.

The range also features the comforting Brazilian-style Black Beans dish which has always been a classic on the LEON menu. It contains a source of fibre and #JustHappensToBeVegan. 

And, if that wasn’t enough, the range also features two more vegan dishes; the warming Lentil Masala, a rich, coconut curry spiced with cumin, ginger & mustard seeds that’s a source of fibre. And, last but certainly not least, the Coconut and Lime Jackfruit Curry, A Sri Lankan-inspired creamy, coconut curry packed with jackfruit, sweet potato and carrots, zinging with lime juice and fresh herbs.

Move over fries

Also launching on 23 September, LEON’s new range of five vegan, Mediterranean-inspired sides. Find them in the chilled aisle with your favourite vegan and plant-based products. 

The new range includes two new vegan Mac ‘N’ Cheeze bites: the first is the Aioli Mac ‘N’ Cheeze bites: a gooey, garlic-infused, mini macaroni & vegan cheeze centre all in a crisp crumb. 

Followed by the Mediterranean Mac ‘N’ Cheeze Bites with a cheezey, sun-dried tomato & herb bechamel, which one will you choose? 

The range also features the Chimichurri Cheeze & Herbs Bites; vegan cheeze, infused with a parsley and green herbs, in a crisp crumb. The Caulipower Wings, crunchy cauliflower wings and a mild, hot sauce-infused, crisp crumband finally, the Crispy Mushroom Nuggets, king oyster mushroom slices, dusted in porcini mushrooms, all coated in an extra-crispy crumb*.

And lastly, LEON proudly announces two new marinated British chargrilled chicken thighs snack-packs. Ready-to-eat, hot or cold. Pack into a wrap, pair with a salad or eat straight from the pack! They’re gluten-free & high in protein too. The thigh of your life! Any-thigh, anyplace, anywhere.
